Now, more then ever, it's important to offer help when you are able. The East Coast has been devastated by Hurricane Sandy, displacing families, people are uneasy about the upcoming election, and flu season is upon us. The Texas-Oklahoma Plains Chapter of Girl Scouts has teamed up with Sleep Experts retailers in Texas, for the 9th year, to "share the warmth".
There are 40 Sleep Experts locations in DFW and 7 in the Austin area, which are accepting new and lightly used blankets, sheets, and towels to be donated to charities aimed at helping homeless families in Tarrant, Dallas, and Collin County, as well as in Austin.
Donations will be accepted through December at participating Sleep Experts locations found at www.sleepexperts.com.
And if your little girl is interested in registering for girl scouts, she will receive a "Share the Warmth" patch (pictured below) when your family makes a donation, while supplies last.
Please keep in mind that Sleep Experts donates used mattresses to families in need year round and offer a one year mattress guarantee to their customers. Sounds like a win-win situation to me!
